We are proud to offer a full spectrum of design services.


Our step-by-step design phases for renovations enables easy decision-making.

Phase I
This stage is crucial to the outcome of your project. We begin by researching your likes, dislikes, priorities, budget, and timeline. We conduct a lifestyle and aesthetics questionnaire as well as take measurements and photos of the existing interior and exterior space. Using the information gathered, we draft AutoCAD drawings of the existing space.

Phase II
Concept Design Development
We prepare a minimum of two design concepts for each project, drafted on AutoCAD.

Phase III
Finish Selections and Specifications
We present to you and help you select all interior and exterior finishes. We then prepare a specification document, which outlines the details of each material and any installation instructions.

Phase IV
Working Drawings
We prepare working drawings, drafted on AutoCAD, based on the final approved concept and finish selections. Each set of drawings includes dimensioned floor plans, elevations, sections and details, general location of electrical components, plumbing components, heating and ventilation components etc. This set of drawings, paired with the finish specifications, make up the final documents needed to get accurate quotations from general contractors and also to be able to construct the project.

Phase V
Project Coordination
We submit the specifications and working drawings to contractors and trades for quotations. After the contractor is hired, we organize a construction schedule. We meet with general contractors, trades and clients on a regular basis before, during and after construction to discuss and resolve any issues and make decisions.


For any decorating project or for simple walk-through consultations, we are here for you on an as-needed basis. We offer the following services:

We meet with you at your home, at a store, showroom or office where we educate and advise you on various interior design options and help you make decisions to obtain an ideal result.
